* Adewale is pretty awesome. He's the OnlySaneMan, down and earthy, and a good friend. But he won't be Edward's enabler and tells him straight up, [[spoiler: that he'd rather by an Assassin than sail under a selfish asshole like him.]] It's great to see a character who blossoms from TheLancer into a HeroOfAnotherStory in the same game.

*** Though it's Pretty Easy, since you've probably upgraded the Jackdaw to Legendary Status by now.

* Upgrading the ''Jackdaw'' and seeing is growth is awesome. You go from cowering in terror from a single brig, to using tactics, mortars and broadside cannons to take out five ships in a single battle.

* The re-birth so to speak of Edward Kenway and The El Dorado into a full-fledged pirate captain and pirate ship, The Jackdaw, respectively. The whole sequence is something to watch, ''especially'' when he decides to ''outrun the hurricane'' that sinks the rest of the legendary Spanish Treasure Fleet.' The music, the thunder, the waterspouts, the killer waves, hell the whole thing seems like the God of the Seas himself is testing the worth of this ragtag pirate crew. Makes it pretty clear who [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII Connor]] gets his "do the impossible" mentality from.

** His EstablishingCharacterMoment? Directly after he and Edward break out of their chains, despite having just met, he proceeds to fill the other half of BashBrothers with Edward. Edward whistles for one guard's attention, chokes him from the corner, then Adewale rushs straight in and deals with the other target, repeated for a total of three times - there's even one case where it's two men he takes down without raising the alarm, with little effort. [[note]] And due to the Animus's mechanics, this is very close to how they canonically escaped. [[/note]]

* James Kidd or [[spoiler: Mary Read is awesomeness itself. When was the last time a woman/love interest got to be not only TheMentor to the hero but also to another woman, Anne Bonny, who she empowers from a waitress to a fellow BackToBackBadasses and who serves as her NumberTwo while she Captains Jack's operation more or less. And while she's pregnant. Alas TooCoolToLive.]]

* It's very much possible to defeat [[spoiler:El Tiburon]] with nothing more than a pistol (or four). This in turn crosses into FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:El Tiburon]] is a heavily armored brute who fights more like someone from Ezio's time (though he also has a pistol of his own), but that means nothing when Edward can just [[RealityEnsues whittle him down him with bullets without ever crossing blades]]. In a way, it shows just how much the old forms of combat have given way to newer ones.

* Edward Kenway is a self-trained pirate able to completely bluff Templars as he uses hidden blades for the first time, and is able to sneak into an Assassin hideout undetected by the dozens of fully trained Assassins already there.
** He isn't undetected: the dialogue we hear states that the Assassins know he's there and that he's been summoned, and that they think he's a jerk for stealing an outfit that didn't belong to him. And then he gets disarmed by [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Ah Tabai]], who came up behind him. Which is a moment of awesome for the Assassins at Tulum. Of course, that also, one can argue make Edward more awesome. Despite being warned, he sneaks past them anyway and according to the sync details, knocked out quite a few of them before finally getting caught by their Mentor. Really, Edward makes a fool out of the entire order and later Ah Tabai admits that he has impressive skills.
